    Obama Timeline - John H. Richardson's Timeline of Obama's First Year - Esquire





    A week before he was sworn in, Obama jammed part two of the bank bailout down the throat of his own party — a $350 billion accomplishment.

    Two days after he was sworn in, Obama banned the use of "harsh interrogation" and ordered the closing of Guantánamo.

    A day later, Obama reversed George W. Bush's funding cutoff to overseas family planning organizations — saving millions of lives with the stroke of a pen.

    Three days after that, Obama gave a green light to the California car-emissions standards that Bush had been blocking for six years — an important step on the road to cleaner air and a cooler planet.

    Two weeks after that, Obama signed the stimulus bill — a $787 billion accomplishment.

    Ten days after that, Obama formally announced America's withdrawal from Iraq.

    A week later — we're in early March now — Obama erased Bush's decision to restrict federal funding for stem-cell research.

    In April and June, Obama forced Chrysler and GM into bankruptcy.

    In June, Obama reset the tone of our relations with the entire Arab world with a single speech — an accomplishment that the Bush administration failed to achieve despite a series of desperate PR moves (anyone remember Charlotte Beers?) and a "public diplomacy" budget of $1 billion a year.

    Also in June, Obama unveiled the "Cash for Clunkers" program, a "socialist" giveaway that reanimated the corpse of our car industry — leading, for example, to the billion-dollar profit that Ford announced on Monday.

    I haven't even mentioned Sonia Sotomayor, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the order to release the torture memos, Obama's push for charter schools, his $288 billion tax cut, or the end of Bush's war on medical marijuana. Or the minor fact that he seems to have — with Bush's help, it must be said — stopped the financial collapse, revived the credit markets, and nudged the economy toward 3.5 percent growth in the last quarter.

    Oh, and one more thing: President Obama is now a month or two from accomplishing the awesome and seemingly impossible task that eluded mighty presidents like FDR, LBJ, and WJC — health-care reform.

    Now stop and think about wether or not you like everything he did he has done a shitload.

    Some of It I am not all that thrilled about but he did what he thought should be done.

    We elec our president and any other elected official to represent us not to VOTE for everything exactly like we want.

    We are a democratic republic, that is the form of Democracry we have. We do NOT have a direct democracy.

    Truthmatters the way you speak just makes you look like a fool..

    This will be looked at as historic change!

    pfft.

    Now Obama on the other hand has had Minor Accomplishments, I'm not saying he hasn't done anything, but the big ones he put forth are just disaster tot he economy. Especially the Bailouts.

    I even hated when Bush signed the Bailout.

    Health Care is a big accomplishment in your own mind.

    Because apparently you want a Social Program without actually having a way to Pay for it.. wait.. we don't even have the money to Afford this Obamacare.

    And you wanna know why it got this far?

    Seedy Chicago Politics. That is all.

    U.S. Economy Gets Lift From Stimulus - WSJ.com

    Health care is a big accomplishment wether you agree with it or not.

    No one has been able to get it done for decades.

    The stimulus is working according to econmists and the Iraq war is winding down.

    The world sees the US in a completely different light now.


    You are a con so you want to say he did nothing.

    Cons also said Sadam did 911 and that the economy was Great right before it crashed.

    Thisw isnt about what you wanted to happened this is about What Obama has done in a year.

    He has done a shitload of very tuff things and its your party who left him the mess to clean up.

    HISTORY doesnt life in your partisan mind.

    History will show just how much Obama did in one year just like history will show how much GWB did in his 8 years.

    Like them are not they both did a shitload huh?

    It is? Tell me, how are we suppose to pay for it? Monopoly money?

    Exactly, You guys don't have the slightest idea how we're gonna pay for this Overhaul..

    In the end this causes Inflation, but then again i'm not surprised, Obama just might be the Second Coming of Carter.

    Go ahead, Type on your Address bar "Google" and then search Websites that somehow show how we're suppose to pay for this without increasing the Debt.

    I'm waiting.

    Here we go...

    When did i say Obama didn't do shit? Never.

    From me.
    Again, what's with all this shouting "Neo-Con" at me? Do you even know what Neo-Con means? I'm A Conservative not a Neo-Con.. There is a difference. Look it up.


    A word of encouragement, Stop Reciting the media.
